Engineering Value: The Foundation Mount System and Acumen Projection Screens Class Up AV Solutions

+ more


It’s difficult to achieve the right mixture of classy and grandiose. Draper®️ has done just that with its Acumen™️ projection screen, one of a pair of new products.

Older surface mounted projection screens can stand out too much in a room or space. But Monica Altman, Draper’s Sales Consultant for National Accounts, said the new offering addresses this common concern.

“Draper noticed there was a pretty big gap in the market as far as aesthetically pleasing [solutions as far as] large screens were concerned. So, we came up with the Acumen to fill in those gaps,” she said. “These screens are available in very large sizes. Most of the screens that are currently on the market get to be a little more industrial-looking the larger you get, so we’re trying to find something that can blend in well with fancier or modern-style rooms and environments.”

That also goes for homes or offices, where those streaming shows in quarantine may be looking for a more impressive solution that doesn’t make their home look like a warehouse.

Another challenge Draper is taking on with a new solution is LED video installation. The Draper Foundation™️ Mount system utilizes several key features that make solutions much easier to install and, like the Acumen series, it fits into any environment.

“We had to put in certain elements into the design that allow for one person to be able to install components on a wall that might be heavy or might be long. In a way, it’s too hard to hold that piece up in the air and try to drive a screw through it into the wall and hold it into place,” said Grant Wylie Director of Product Management for AV Structures and Solutions at Draper.

Draper utilized keyholes for the mounting holes, letting the installer hang components on existing screws. It’s another solution that classes up the AV system’s look and makes life easier for the person putting it into place.
